Overview[edit]

First introduced in Guilty Gear 2: Overture, Sin is the happy-go-lucky son of Ky Kiske and Dizzy, who fell in love after the events of Accent Core. Due to the Gear blood he inherited from Dizzy, Sin developed extremely quickly after his birth; with Ky ruling a nation and Dizzy in stasis, Sin's rearing was entrusted to bounty hunter and fellow Gear Sol Badguy. Under Sol's tutelage, Sin accompanies him across the world in search of bounties, carrying most of their equipment along the way. Sin is slowly warming up to his father, and with his mother out of the picture for the moment, he looks up to Sol as a mentor and father figure. In battle Sin utilizes lightning magic, which arcs wild and red due to his Gear heritage; he also possesses a battle standard that he brandishes as a makeshift pole arm. He isn't the most well-spoken kid and can be cocky at times, but he has a big heart and tries to improve his shortcomings one at a time.

As a playable character Sin can be unlocked in the Gallery Mode for 200,000$. He sports good damage and a wide variety of specials which can be used by spending his unique Calorie gauge. The Calorie gauge has to be refilled with his eating special 214hs. Because of this playing Sin requires meter management skills in the middle of combos but as far as characters with unique meters go in Guilty Gear games, Sin is a simple & beginner-friendly character with basic mixup, great damage and long range.

Strengths[edit]

  • Very high damage with calorie meter.
  • Has the unique ability to cancel any special into any other special.
  • Good pressure and decent frame traps.
  • Good neutral with long ranged normals and specials.
  • Somewhat safe DP, as it can be canceled on block into his other specials.
  • Great backdash.
  • Has one of the best anti-air 6P's of the game with great range and reward + fast recovery on whiff.

Weaknesses[edit]

  • Meter hungry, in terms of both Tension and his own gauge. Most strong combo confirms/okizeme conversions require 50 meter and/or calories.
  • Limited gatling paths
  • Has poor mixup without calories.
  • While DP is safe on block, it has a VERY poor hitbox and slow speed (+ only 1 active frame), easy to make whiff. Ride The Lightning is not a true reversal (invulnerability starts on frame 4)

Jump and Special cancelable. Small hurtbox on the non-kicking foot makes this move good for hitting your opponent as they mash 2P/2K. Gatlings into 3K; 2K>5K>3K>6H will combo because 2K forces crouching

Worst proration of Sin's lows and fairly slow for a 2K as well, but serves its purpose. Forces crouching on hit, and can link into 2H. 2K>5K>3K>6H will combo because of crouching state.

28,28,16 Mid SJ YRP 11 2,2,2 34 -17

Slow, 3-hit launcher type move. Not a great anti-air, so best used as a punisher. First two hits force standing, third hit floats the opponent. All hits are jump cancelable.


3K[edit]
3K
GGXRD Sin 3K.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
22 Low S YRP 11 4 12 -2
  • Proration: 90%

Low flag poke. Staggers on ch, only gatlings into 6H which is plus on block and all special moves ;3K into 6H is a blockstring only contestable if your opponent uses a invul reversal. When spaced well, be used as a meaty to make reversals whiff and you can mix between special cancelling 3K,jump canceling the 6H followup into j. D, or simply pressing the frame advantage of 6H.

Great tool for IOH off of jump cancelable normals and in general. Can confirm into j.214S, and pick up with dashing j.P or j.S; You can also RC after j.214S for a more stable/damaging confirm. This move completely halts momentum during jumps/leaps until which it will return to normal.

0, 0, 60 Throw: 75250 - R 1 - - +55

Throw with 65% proration. RC and dash or leap after them to combo. Otherwise, it knocks the opponent far enough where eating is safe. Since Sin can easily crank guard gauge, throwing the opponent when the opponent's gauge is high enough will allow you to combo from this without meter.

Starving will cost you 95 frames
  • Sin starts each round with 10,000 Calories (with a maximum of 16,000)
  • Every time Sin uses a Special attack (with the exception of 214+P/K and 214+HS) he will burn 1,000 Calories
  • You can also cancel Special attacks into other Special attacks by burning an additional 1,000 Calories (ex. 623+S > 236+K will burn a total of 3,000 Calories)
  • If you hit 0 Calories when doing Special Attacks, you will be forced into a hunger animation for 95F after the Special Attack.
  • Use 214H to refill Calories

  • Burns 1,000 Calories

Invincible until active frames, but still a relatively unreliable reversal due to it's small hitbox. Unsafe on HIT unless canceled into another special, and only combos into 236H. However as of 1.1, Hawk baker can combo into leap > air normal in some situations. Has a CRITICAL HIT effect when used point-blank, causing the opponent to shine red and increasing the untech time.

  • Burns 1,000 Calories
  • Causes wall bounce on counter hit second hit (tip of flagpole)
  • Can be low-profiled

Quick and long reaching stab that hits twice, with the first hit canceling out projectiles. The uncharged version is the standard combo ender on the ground and in the air, and the charged version is a great starter or counter hit follow-up, causing a sliding knockdown midscreen or a wall stick in the corner. In his neutral, this can be used a far poke while fishing for counter-hits then leaping in for added hits after the wall bounce. In ground combos, RC > 6H for a stable confirm.

Air 50,26 - - YRP 9 3,6 until landing + 10 -
  • Burns 1,000 Calories

Your air combo ender for the most part. Enemies can tech if this is used on them too high in the air. Can also poke enemies out of the sky from a reasonable distance in which most moves would not. TK'ing can be used to catch jump outs from pressure.

Staff Rain Omega. Good for causing chip or cranking the guard gauge after a blocked 236H, although unsafe. Probably best reserved for when you have 50 meter to RC. Going into this from 236H doesn't have the extra cost of canceling a special into a special, and ends up costing 2k calories. Up to 13 hits, not counting the first two from Beak Driver

60 High - YRP 32 6 32 -19
  • Burns 1,000 Calories

Long range overhead attack; Air unblockable. If you hit with the tip of the flag when the opponent is airborne it does ~10% less damage, but bounces them higher than if you hit with the middle of the flag. This move is best controlling space or keeping the opponent awake during a blockstring, as it is far too slow to ever mix someone up with.

Doesn't use any of the calorie gauge, even if canceled into from another special. Useful for surprise gapclosing, punishing, or making specials safer without using calories, as well as general positioning. You maintain your your airdashes after a leap, and if you jump install you can double jump as well. Another interesting thing to note is that inputting a jump by itself immediately before inputting the move will also grant a double jump. You can control the arc by holding 4 or 6.

  • If Calorie Gauge is above 10,000 you will recover 3,000 (maximum stock is 16,000)

Has a decent amount of recovery, so you generally want to use it after a knockdown or when you push them far away with a blocked special. Can be YRC'd but won't fill hunger unless you cancel it after the flash.

  • Entering a direction (8-way) with HS allows you to continue the attack in that direction (possible 2 times after initial hit)

Full invul until the hitbox appears. Can provide corner carry and knockdown depending on how you use your charges. Good use for when you need this to kill in your combo. If blocked, try to steer away using another dash to be less punishable.

Slow projectile that hits 5 times. Fast recovery after usage, along with slow movement speed make it only ideal for okizeme set ups, or using it as a shield to approach behind when close. It also proves useful during pressure, where he should throw this move out and immediately eat to refill lost meter then keep his pressure going. A gimmick for long range use is to use it full screen while covering the aerial height with air Beak Driver if they jump. Aerial version shoots it at an angle similar to Ky's air Charged Stun Edge in previous GG games but has far less startup and can be followed up an airdash for combos.

Uses 2H as the startup attack if 2H only did one hit. This move is only practical if you manage to stun the opponent long enough to get it out or when the conditions to combo into IKs are met. The startup attack also happens to be one of the most disadvantageous hits for an IK on block, tied only with Millia.
